Commercial Litigation

Legal disputes often come with the territory of a successful and growing business. When a lawsuit becomes necessary, the commercial litigation attorneys at Davis, Burch & Abrams are prepared to tailor and execute a plan of action specifically for your business needs. With years of successful litigation experience representing both plaintiffs and defendants, we are committed to bottom-line results for your business.

Our attorneys have experience litigating in trial and appellate courts around the country, but our practice focuses on the federal and state courts in Hampton Roads and Richmond, Virginia. We have extensive experience litigating in the Eastern District of Virginia, commonly referred to as the “Rocket Docket.” We have handled matters ranging in complexity from billion-dollar class actions to multi-million dollar contract disputes and tort claims.

We frequently handle disputes involving government contractors, such as tortious interference and trade secrets issues.  In fact, in 2017 we were successful in achieving a $3.8 million dollar jury verdict for a government contractor on a tortious interference claim.

We also have experience with the unique issues surrounding franchise disputes. Franchise disputes typically involve complex contract, venue, non-compete, and non-solicit issues. We have helped clients successfully navigate these issues and reach favorable outcomes for more than a decade.

Local experience, including knowing the bar, judges, and local rules are essential to success in any commercial litigation matter. Our trial lawyers stay on top of the latest industry news and high-profile cases, allowing us to provide our clients with the most cutting-edge legal knowledge and strategies available.
